Report: Suicide Squad Runtime Clocks In At 130 Minutes

Sources close to Collider claim that Suicide Squad will stretch for just over two hours when David Ayer’s anti-hero feature lands in August.

Closing in on the end of post-production, with tie-in music videos already beginning to surface, a report emerging today seemingly reveals that Warner Bros.’ hotly-anticipated tentpole will run for exactly 130 minutes, credits included.

Take this one with a pinch of salt, of course, considering that David Ayer’s latest status report from WB noted that the production team still have a handful of last-minute tasks to tick off (read: final mix and coloring).

For the sake of perspective, and assuming Collider’s sources are on point, at 130 minutes in length, Suicide Squad would clock in as one of the shorter superhero movies to emerge from the genre in recent times. Green Lantern, for instance, »

6 Of The Dumbest Comic Book Battles Between Batman And Superman

25 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

That's hardly a surprise when Zack Snyder was essentially adapting the battle from The Dark Knight Returns, while there are plenty of other examples from the source material of these two iconic heroes going to war with each other. Alas, not all of them are as epic and action-packed as others; some are just downright embarrassing and ridiculous. That's to be expected when these two have »

Kevin Conroy talks Batman: The Killing Joke, working with Mark Hamill, and expanding the story

24 June 2016 3:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the long-awaited animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke now just a little over a month away from release, voice actor Kevin Conroy has been speaking to DC All Access about reprising the role of The Dark Knight, expanding the source material for a feature length movie, and working once again with his Batman: The Animated Series co-star Mark Hamill.

“I like to think I never left the voice of Batman,” said Conroy. “I’ve been doing it for 24 years. What’s wonderful about it is getting back in the booth with Mark Hamill, because that Batman-Joker relationship, it’s almost like Joker defines Batman and Batman defines Joker, it’s the dark and the light, and sometimes it feels like either of us wouldn’t exist completely without the other, and Mark and I work so well together… I could never do what Mark does, because Mark becomes Joker. »

Kevin Conroy Discusses Batman: The Killing Joke

24 June 2016 10:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the release of the R-rated animated film Batman: The Killing Joke right around the corner, fan anticipation is starting to reach critical mass. Seeing as how Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s highly acclaimed graphic novel came out way back in 1988, many probably thought it would never see any sort of adaptation, let alone one that would be faithful and break the PG-13 chains.

Thanks to the hallowed team at Warner Bros. Animation, it will become a reality as both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprise their roles of Batman and The Joker, respectively. These fan favorite voice actors have lent their pipes to the aforementioned iconic characters for the better part of a quarter century in projects such as Batman: The Animated Series, various Batman: Arkham video games, and nearly everything in between.

Conroy was quick to point out his seemingly never ending tenure as The Dark Knight, »

'Independence Day', 'Shallows' & 'Free State of Jones' Must Contend with 'Finding Dory'

23 June 2016 10:32 AM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Summer 2016 is heating up after last week's massive opening for Disney and Pixar's Finding Dory and its impressive day-to-day performance ever since. Hoping to add some fuel to the box office fire, this weekend's crop of new releases are led by Independence Day: Resurgence, the sequel to the blockbuster hit of Summer 1996. Also opening this weekend, Stx will target adult audiences with Free State of Jones, Blake Lively must survive a killer shark in The Shallows and Broad Green is delivering Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon into just over 780 theaters. It's a crowded marketplace with a little something for everybody. Quelling some of the suspense, the battle for box office supremacy this weekend might not be much of a battle at all. Pixar's forgetful fish should handily take down the alien invaders as Finding Dory is looking at a $70+ million second weekend while Fox's Independence Day sequel carries a big budget, »

10 Controversial Comic Book Movie Moments Marvel And DC Want You To Forget Ever Happened

Even bona fide hits like The Avengers and The Dark Knight featured moments or creative decisions which have upset fans, but those pale in comparison to some of the worst offenders over the years. Whether it's because studios have taken it upon themselves to make baffling choices they for some reason believe will work better than what the comic books have been doing so well for decades or just really stupid plot points that make no sense, some adaptations have ended up dropping »

Affleck Talks All Things Batman, His Relationship With The Flash, And Making 'Justice League' Better

23 June 2016 7:41 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ben Affleck is seen as a beacon of hope by many fans of the DC Extended Universe. As an actor, writer, and filmmaker he's proven himself many times- even bouncing back from some fairly epic career low-points, demonstrating great poise, focus, and humility. His work in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice received near universal praise, even if the writing of his character left a somewhat bitter taste in the mouths of some. When it was announced that he'd been added as an executive producer on Justice League and was taking a more hands-on approach with the making of the film, fans rejoiced.

During the recent Damage Control Tour 2016...I mean...ahem..."set visit" where journalists were allowed to check out the Justice League production in a very thorough way, Affleck shed some light on a great many things.

Let's start with the briefest, most cryptic message he gave to »

Film Review: ‘The Duel’

22 June 2016 6:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you’re an actor playing someone who’s sick and twisted and evil, almost nothing will get you into character quite like a startling new look. That tends to be the case whether the look comes courtesy of the makeup department (think Heath Ledger’s Joker in “The Dark Knight” or Robert De Niro’s Al Capone in “The Untouchables”) or, simply, the electric razor. In “The Duel,” Woody Harrelson plays some sort of lethally charismatic Southern cult leader in the years after the Civil War, and his performance, which is all about being the kind of person no one can take their eyes off of, begins with his look: a shaved head, which seems like no big deal, but with matching shaved eyebrows (and occult tattooish squiggles in their place), all of which give Harrelson the appearance of a death-row psycho, or an overgrown baby, or maybe a strutting alien. »

Batman v Superman Ultimate Cut Coming to Theaters, New Footage Arrives

22 June 2016 5:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few months ago, after it was confirmed that an Ultimate Edition cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be released on Blu-ray and DVD formats, rumors spread that Warner Bros. was considering a theatrical re-release as well. With the Digital HD version of this R-rated Ultimate Edition debuting Tuesday, June 28, it seems fans will actually get to see this extended cut on the big screen for just one night only. If that wasn't enough, we also have a new Ultimate Edition trailer with even more new footage.

Earlier today, an alert was sent out from WBTickets.com, confirming that the one-night-only theatrical event for Batman v Superman is happening. The tickets will be free, but fans must sign up at the website above. The event will take place in 12 cities, Austin, TX, Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, Houston, Burbank, California, Hollywood, California, two separate New York City locations, Philadelphia, »

Official character descriptions for Superman prequel series Krypton

22 June 2016 2:47 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month it was announced that Syfy had given a pilot order for Krypton, a Superman prequel series from David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Man of Steel), which will take place two generations prior to the destruction of the planet and focusses on Kal-El’s grandfather. Thanks to TV Line, we now have official character descriptions for the pilot:

Seg-el | Envisioned here as athletic, quietly confident and in his 20s, comic fans are familiar with an older (and a bit grumpier) Seg from his appearance in the classic Starman No. 51, written by James Robinson with story by Robinson and David S. Goyer, who is executive producer/writer of Krypton. But Seg’s a good guy at any age; in the comics, he and son Jor-El (Kal-El/Superman’s father) helped Starman get away while other Kryptonians wanted to detain – and dissect – the Earthling.

7 Superhero Movies That Have Totally Unfair IMDb Ratings

21 June 2016 9:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Superhero fans are a highly opinionated bunch, with wars often waged in internet comments sections over whether the latest comic book movie was a rousing success or just plain sucked. However, most do generally reach a consensus over a movie’s worth.

Let’s take a look at IMDb, for example. A lot of us can agree that The Dark Knight deserves its 9.0 score on the site, while Batman & Robin should be stamped with its laughable mark of 3.7. In some cases, though, IMDb’s ratings can be pretty bizarre or just downright unfair. A number of superhero films have way lower scores on IMDb than they really deserve.

Obviously, as the following ratings prove, this is all subjective, so feel free to disagree with us. Maybe you actually do think Batman & Robin deserves to be ranked higher than The Dark Knight (though, if you do, »

Ben Affleck confirms he’s directing a Batman solo movie

21 June 2016 7:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Justice League set reports springing up online, Slash Film has posted an interview with The Dark Knight himself Ben Affleck, during which he officially confirmed that he’s set to direct a solo Batman movie following the big DC team-up.

“Why I’m an executive producer [on Justice League] is that I’m directing one of the movies,” states Affleck. “So there’s sort of this cross-pollination of story and characters and I don’t want to give any of that stuff away, but it basically means that there are some things that might happen in my Batman that are affected by, I mean, here we are in the police station in Gotham City. There’s a potential that something like this might exist in that story. So it’s a creative way that DC came up with of kind of being a filmmaker-driven company and entity and also making sure that »

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Wants To Play This Alternate Reality Version Of Batman

20 June 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Watchmen and The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan made a blink and you’ll miss it appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice as Thomas Wayne. While the movie didn’t really need yet another version of The Dark Knight’s origin story, director Zack Snyder provided a memorable spin on it, and it was nice to see a familiar face in the rather thankless role.

Now, it’s been revealed that Morgan is keen on reprising the part, albeit in a very different way. Talking to fans during a convention appearance this past weekend, the actor revealed that he’d like to suit up as the Batman from the Flashpoint Universe.

“Man, I would love to play that Batman… It would be very cool. Flashpoint would be very cool.”

For those of you unfamiliar with the story, it featured Barry Allen travelling back in time to save »

Reel TV: Watch the Dazzling Trailer for Jonathan Nolan's 'Westworld' Remake

20 June 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

If you had to pick source material for a new HBO series, you'd probably be inclined to look at something that already has a ton of story under its belt, like Game of Thrones or True Blood. Or maybe you'd think to turn to an established historical setting, like Deadwood, Boardwalk Empire or Vinyl. You probably would not think to turn to a 43-year-old movie about a theme park filled with robots. Unless you're Interstellar and The Dark Knight writer Jonathan Nolan, that is.  Westworld is Nolan's second show as a writer-producer (the first is Person of Interest), and it is a remake of the directorial debut of Jurassic Park writer Michael Crichton. If you've never seen the 1973 version, you may still know the general gist of it thanks to the The...

Watch Sentient Robots in Creepy 'Westworld' Trailer

20 June 2016 7:44 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Robots populating a futuristic theme park begin to develop sentience in the creepy new trailer for HBO's Westworld, a 10-episode sci-fi/thriller premiering on the network in October. 

The clip opens with humanoid Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) sitting in a Lynchian dark room, asked by an eerie voice if she's ever "questioned the nature of [her] reality." From there, the preview reveals the foreboding Western landscapes of Westworld, a theme park where customers can indulge their depraved desires for sex and gun-slinging. 

But the park's operators begin to worry as the »

'Suicide Squad' May Have the Soundtrack of the Summer

Superhero movies have some of the most iconic scores -- from Superman to The Dark Knight -- but they're also no strangers to pop music. Just look back to Prince's contributions to Tim Burton's Batman and Seal's hit "Kiss from a Rose" from Batman Forever, to Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott's "Hero" from Spider-Man. But the soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy was a whole new animal in terms of giving moviegoers and fans an...

Intense new trailer for HBO’s Westworld unveiled

19 June 2016 11:36 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As was promised, HBO delivered a brand new teaser trailer for Westworld, their long-awaited science fiction western based on Michael Crichton’s 1973 feature film of the same name, before the latest episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday. The intense trailer, which is now online, can be viewed below…

If it weren’t for the multiple production delays that the project faced last year, it’s very much possible that HBO would have been well into airing the first season of Westworld by now, if not completely finished with it. Regardless, the network now has the show’s debut episode slated for a not-too-far-off October 2016 release date.

With the end in sight for Game of Thrones, loyal HBO viewers will be looking for a new show to cling onto once the land of Westeros is retired, and Westworld could potentially fill that void. The trailer alone teases a universe that looks fun, »

Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy vs. The McU Captain America Trilogy

18 June 2016 6:56 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Which is the best comic book inspired trilogy? Christopher Nolan’s revered Dark Knight trilogy has become the gold standard for turning comic book super heroes into serious art. However, the three McU Captain America films have been called the best of all the McU franchises. Both are excellent trilogies. Which is better? Let’s take a look.

When Christopher Nolan took over the Batman cinematic project, he revived a character who had been diminished in his previous film appearance (Batman and Robin) and resurrected the Bat, showing the world that comic book films could stand up with other genres in terms of artistic quality, critical praise, box office clout and franchise sustainability. He helped make comic adaptations credible. In his own words, he said, “We wanted to show things that people wouldn’t expect to see in that kind of film”.
